For those bold enough to presume the Browns might not take Myles Garrett with the top overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft: you can stop being bold and you may cease to presume.

The Browns are flying their flag as high and as loudly as possible in recent days, with VP of football ops Sashi Brown saying during the team's pre-draft meeting that the Browns, who have received calls about trading down, are going to sit tight at the top spot.

"That would surprise me. If we traded down this year," Brown said. "We have received calls. We haven't resigned ourselves one way or the other," Brown said. "We feel really good about picking at [No. 1] and I'll leave it at that."

Asked specifically about whether they would take Garrett with the top pick, Brown didn't give that much away.

"We've narrowed it down," Brown said. "We feel good about where we are."
Sashi is a pretty understated dude, someone who doesn't go out of his way to make bold statements. This is as close to "I AM DRAFTING MYLES BLEEPING GARRETT" as you will get from him. (Also the NFL wants teams at the top of the draft to play along and help generate suspense.)
